Canyon Springs can take comfort in keeping the state championship game close early. But in the end, the Gorman juggernaut taught the Pioneers a brutal truth: size matters.

high school basketball:
RENO — As soon as Chris Nelson’s 3-point attempt left his hands, Canyon Springs High basketball coach Freddie Banks looked toward his bench to make a substitution. But Nelson’s shot, the Pioneers lone 3-point attempt in the second half of today’s state semifinals against Spanish Springs, bounced of the front of the rim and rattled down for three points. Nelson was safe. So was Canyon Springs.

high school basketball: Canyon Springs High plays Spanish Springs Thursday in the state semifinals in Reno; likely will face Gorman Friday for championship
Darrell McCall will start at center Thursday for the Canyon Springs High basketball team in the state semifinals against Northern Nevada’s Spanish Springs at the Lawlor Events Center in Reno. It’s just at 6-foot-3, McCall isn’t the typical post player. That’s just how Canyon Springs coach Freddie Banks likes it, tailoring his lineup to include mostly guards that quickly get up and down the court, proving to be the right formula in overwhelming the opposition. The Pioneers last week won their third Sunrise Regional championship in four seasons to earn a return trip to state.

Shaquile Carr, making up for lost time, leads Canyon Springs to Sunrise title
Friday, February 21, 2014
high school basketball:
Shaquile Carr delivered on his promise to lead the Canyon Springs High basketball team back to the state tournament. Last year, when the Pioneers blew a five-point lead in the last minute of the state semifinals to Centennial, Carr sat helplessly on the end of the bench, missing the playoffs after being declared academically ineligible. In the locker room that night, he made a promise. “He told me after the season was over last year, ‘Coach, we are going back,’” Canyon Springs coach Freddie Banks said. It seemed only fitting that Carr was the difference-maker today in Canyon Springs’ 64-55 ...

high school recruiting:
Whenever college basketball coaches visited Canyon Springs High in North Las Vegas to recruit guard Shaquile Carr, initial questions typically didn’t start with how many points or assists he averaged per game. Rather, it’s another average they were concerned with — his grade-point average.

Gerad Davis sparks Pioneers with 36 points in "his best game"
Gerad Davis inhaled deeply and pretended to spoon himself food upon checking out of Canyon Springs’ game for the first time with three minutes to go Wednesday night. It was the perfect choreography for Davis’ saunter down the bench. The senior guard earned the fatigue by feasting on Las Vegas High.

High school basketball: Shaq Carr had to sit out the last semester of his junior season, cooling his recruitment and forcing him to refocus
Shaq Carr knows it’s better to be seen and not heard than the other way around. That’s what he’s striving for, because for the past semester, at least in basketball circles, he was neither.

high school basketball: Former UNLV star Freddie Banks' team is looking for its second state championship in three seasons
Jordan Davis always believed he would be leading his basketball team onto the floor at the high school state tournament. But not even Davis, a sophomore guard at Canyon Springs High, could imagine it happening at this stage of his career. Davis, after all, wasn’t promoted to the varsity team until two weeks ago.
